Morro Bay, California – Molly Smith, the youngest member of Team Smith & Wesson, won three first-place finishes on Saturday, April 21, at the 2012 International Confederation of Revolver Enthusiasts (ICORE) Southwest Regional Match.
“It was just a fantastic match, and everyone had a wonderful time!” said Molly.
Competing as part of a record-breaking turnout of 124 shooters, Molly managed to pull off her personal best competition shooting performance (so far) in a single match, winning three top-level trophies: First Place Lady, Limited; First Place Junior, Limited; and First Place C Class, Limited.
Molly said that the stages designed for this year’s Southwest Regional were unusual and very challenging to shoot well, including a rotating plate rack, multiple barricades and even an X-Count field course. Molly shot the match with her trusty Smith & Wesson Model 627 revolver fitted with a titanium cylinder and a Hogue Extended Cylinder Release.
Molly extended her heartfelt thanks to the many friends who rooted for her. “I appreciate everybody’s happy thoughts and well-wishes. They worked!”
